EEB Virtual Thursday Seminar: Skelevision: understanding temperature-driven morphological variation across space and time using bird skeletal specimens and computer vision

Brian Weeks, Assistant Professor, U-M SEAS

By reducing handling time, this machine - affectionately called the bone dumper - made it feasible to rapidly photograph >14,000 bird skeletons in the UM ornithology collections. Using a computer vision approach to identify and measure traits on particular bones in the photographs, it has been possible to generate a large-scale functional trait dataset based on these images.
